World IPv 6 Launch 2012 § This time it’s for real: 6 June 2012

World IPv 6 Launch 2012 § This time it’s for real: 6 June 2012 is the kick-off date § Regular business operation with IPv 6 § “On by default” § Commercial IPv 6 at scale by year-end. 2 The Internet Society

IPv 6 is a “Must Have” Technology Connectivity § No, you cannot have more

IPv 6 is a “Must Have” Technology Connectivity § No, you cannot have more IPv 4 addresses § Even if you could, connecting the next 4 billion requires something more than IPv 4 can ever do Innovation § Additional infrastructure inhibits innovation through operational and technological constraints § IPv 6 enables an open, fully connected Internet § Permission-free innovation is a key part of what makes the Internet the network that it is – where will the next Google or Facebook come from? 3 The Internet Society

What was World IPv 6 Day? www. worldipv 6 day. org For 24 hours

What was World IPv 6 Day? www. worldipv 6 day. org For 24 hours on 8 June 2011 (00 h 00 -23 h 59 UTC) Facebook, Google, Yahoo! and more than 1000 other websites turned on IPv 6 access on their “front door” Goals: § Motivate Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors, Web companies and others to prepare their services for IPv 6 § Understand what issues still need to be addressed to ensure a successful transition to IPv 6 as IPv 4 addresses run out. While there have been similar notable efforts, World IPv 6 Day was the first global, real-world “test-flight” of IPv 6—and the largest ever. 5 The Internet Society

Motivations for the World IPv 6 Day Event – and Impacts § Breaking the

Motivations for the World IPv 6 Day Event – and Impacts § Breaking the chicken-and-egg problem of IPv 6 deployment – networks clearly see that content is getting there § Improving IPv 6 connectivity by understanding outstanding issues faced by a small percentage of users (but significant numbers for large content providers) – more fixes are in flight § Providing a target date for already planned IPv 6 rollouts – people definitely responded to having a date § Spurring organizations to create a plan for rolling out IPv 6 – being like Google, Facebook, and Yahoo! is important § Catalyzing the kind of collaboration that the Internet has relied upon through its history – people noticed that the Internet industry came together to advance something that is important for the overall long term health of the Internet 6 The Internet Society

What happened? § Nothing! (this was terrific) § Provided a basis for the world

What happened? § Nothing! (this was terrific) § Provided a basis for the world to think about IPv 6, this can be done, won’t break. § Traffic numbers were low globally (< 1%), but in France >3% of traffic was IPv 6, due to one IPv 6 enabled network (Free) – this demonstrates that if you enable your network with IPv 6, it will get used with IPv 6 – this will be true wherever IPv 6 is turned up. § Only isolated issues reported 7 The Internet Society

World IPv 6 Day Impacts § Have heard other industries say: “Well, that clearly

World IPv 6 Day Impacts § Have heard other industries say: “Well, that clearly worked. ” § It was collaborative effort, across business boundaries § What this means for the operator community: content providers are ready; if you provide access over IPv 6, increasingly you will have traffic § World IPv 6 Day blew the doors off some preconceptions: – that IPv 6 isn’t doable, and won’t be done – that industry players can’t coordinate – we’ve seen and heard repeated evidence of “changed minds” because of the event 8 The Internet Society

World IPv 6 Launch www. worldipv 6 launch. org When? § 6 June 2012

World IPv 6 Launch www. worldipv 6 launch. org When? § 6 June 2012 What? § IPv 6 is part of Regular Business, on by default, no special configuration necessary for anyone anywhere Who? § Access networks, home router vendors, websites from around the world participating, please join – www. worldipv 6 launch. org Why? § Acceleration: those already planning to roll-out IPv 6 should accelerate their plans § Adoption: those who don’t have plans yet, it’s safe now, please start § Definition: industry leaders are establishing IPv 6 as the new normal 10 The Internet Society

World IPv 6 Launch: Access Networks Who? § ATT, Comcast, Free, Internode, KDDI, Time

World IPv 6 Launch: Access Networks Who? § ATT, Comcast, Free, Internode, KDDI, Time Warner Cable, XS 4 ALL § Additional networks are welcome to join, see: www. worldipv 6 launch. org IPv 6 becomes part of Regular Business now § New subscribers get IPv 6 on by default after 6 June 2012 – No user config required § 1% of visits to IPv 6 -enabled websites from participating networks is done using IPv 6 by 6 June – IPv 6 usage will depend on IPv 6 capabilities of home networks and home equipment, so the enabled customer base should be higher – This will be measured by the big participating websites and displayed on the World IPv 6 Launch website 11 The Internet Society

World IPv 6 Launch: Home Router Vendors Who? § Cisco, D-Link § Additional home

World IPv 6 Launch: Home Router Vendors Who? § Cisco, D-Link § Additional home router vendors are welcome to join, see: www. worldipv 6 launch. org IPv 6 becomes part of Regular Business now § Majority of products shipping with IPv 6 on by default § No user configuration is required to use IPv 6 § V 6 interoperability verification by UNH-IOL (and others? ) 12 The Internet Society

World IPv 6 Launch: Websites Who? § Facebook, Google, Microsoft Bing, and Yahoo! §

World IPv 6 Launch: Websites Who? § Facebook, Google, Microsoft Bing, and Yahoo! § Others are welcomed to join, see: www. worldipv 6 launch. org § Akamai and Limelight are enabling their customers who ask for it. IPv 6 becomes part of Regular Business now § IPv 6 is permanently enabled on the main website – No IPv 6 specific URLs (www. ipv 6. example. com) or mirror sites § IPv 6 -enabled users will use IPv 6 without extra configuration § The World IPv 6 Launch website will have a reachability dashboard similar to what was used in 2011 for World IPv 6 Day 13 The Internet Society

Joining World IPv 6 Launch is a Commitment to Commercial-grade IPv 6 § Industry

Joining World IPv 6 Launch is a Commitment to Commercial-grade IPv 6 § Industry leaders are committed § Aims to encourage additional commitment § Builds on and makes a significant step up from World IPv 6 Day in 2011 – World IPv 6 Day blew the doors off some preconceptions: § that IPv 6 isn’t doable, and won’t be done § that industry players can’t coordinate § we’ve seen and heard repeated evidence of “changed minds” because of the event 14 The Internet Society
